NOW

Today is a day in October, 2018

I like this page, so I created one: http://nownownow.com/

I haven't updated my NOW page in so long; this is why I would never be a good blogger, and it's the same reason I stink at Twitter!

Here's a longform essay appear on Aeon about the psychological science underpinning CBT. I'd like to make the slogan of this essay into a t-shirt-- It Is What It Is.. maybe something like, "Dude, it is what it is."

My ebook "Love, Loss, and the Space Between" is no longer new, but is still available on Amazon! $3.00. You can't beat the price...The link should send you to Amazon site. If you like it, please spread the word!

Here's a whiteboard explainer video about the new book!

With my colleagues Julianne Holt-Lunstad (BYU) and Ted Robles (UCLA), we recently published a piece in the American Psychologist on prioritizing "social connection" as a public health concern. Here's the press release with free access to the papers... lots of good ones!

We had a new paper out on narrative expressive writing and heart changes over time following marital separation. Check out the press release. Here's the paper.

Here's a semi-new paper on divorce, daily social behaviors, and immune response.

I am also working on an interesting new project to prevent type 2 diabetes. Here is a brief piece from the APS Observer on the project.

I published a paper back in 2017 on social integration and sleep disturbances came out this spring in the open access journal, Collabra. I am going to do a lot more BG work now-- lots of cool questions out there using this method. I keep saying this but never getting around to it. If you'd like to collaborate on some genetically-informed quasi-causal studied, shoot me an email!

I am President of the Academy of Clinical Psychological Science, a professional organization dedicated to promoting training in clinical science. Check out our website! We just launched a "Flexibility Fund" initiative for grad students from Academy Programs. Check it out here!
